    KristinV's Note:

    A fantastic recipe given to me by my workmate. I was a bit wary of trying it out as it had sour cream and my hubby hates sour cream but I cooked it without telling him and he loved it. Its regular meal now and if we have no chicken I substitute with beef cubes or chicken sausages. Apparently the original recipe called for chicken Pieces.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cube chicken fillets and place in plastic bag. Add flour and soup mix to the bag and shake until chicken is coated. Don't worry if there seems to be a lot of dry mix left in the bag.
    2. 2
      Place coated chicken and oil into frying pan leaving the left over dry mix in the bag to the side.
    3. 3
      Brown the chicken and remove from the pan.
    4. 4
      Dice the bacon and onion and place in the frying pan where the chicken was cooked and cook until onion is translucent.
    5. 5
      Add the chicken back into the frying pan with the bacon and onion.
    6. 6
      Take the left over dry mixture and add to the cup of water and mix. Pour this mixture over the ingredients in the frying pan.
    7. 7
      Simmer for around 20 minutes adding more water if needed.
    8. 8
      While this is simmering prepare the couscous as directed on the packet and heat the frozen vegetables (I use the microwave).
    9. 9
      After the 20 minutes, or when you are happy the chicken is cooked, add the sour cream mixing well. At this point I chuck in the prepared couscous and the vegetable but you can just add the vegetables and serve the chicken mixture over the couscous.

      Great quick simple weeknight meal! I left out the additional onion and added peas for my veggie. I was a short on sour cream and only used about half of the specified amount but thought it was really good that way. Served as suggested over couscous; I think this would be great over mashed potatoes as well. Thanks for posting this recipe!

      This was a delicious dish. I don't even like onions, but will make this again. I added more water, after I added the soup mix and water and let it simmer for 20 minutes. I wished I would have just left the sauce thick as it was and then added the sour cream, the gravy would have then been thicker , just the way I like it. Next time, I'll just follow the directions, and not add the extra water. Thanks for a great recipe.

      This was really good. I used chicken cutlets and didn't cut them into chunks and didn't add vegetables because I was having corn and okra, but made otherwise. I will make again and like Wildflour, use noodles. I had biscuits instead to sop up the gravy. Thanks for sharing.
